I looked and the only thing I could come up with is to e-mail JBL and order a new one. Radio shack, Best Buy, or Futurehsop might be able to help but you have to call them with the model number or go to the store and check it out. Here's the link to JBL if you want to order a new one.

Sorry, wish I had a better answer but there isn't much out there for this.

I fixed a similar problem I was having. It requires a little work.

Take out the four screws from under the broken speaker. Carefully remove the cover, separating the speaker from the base. The two are wired together so don't pull them apart with force. Then remove the single screw, which is much larger the the previous four, and separate the speaker from the top cover.

If you chose you can remove the wires from the speaker, they just snap on, but its not required.

What I found is the speaker issue is not with the wire or the power, but the speaker it's self. On the back there is a big round metal piece. On my speaker that piece was pushed towards the front of the speaker. When I looked at the good speaker, that big piece was all the way back. So I simply pulled it back and presto, instant fix!

I hope this works for you.

SOURCE: I need replacement speakers for

Welcome to Fixya

I am sorry to infrom but the satellite speakers for this unit are not sold separately. You will need to buy the whole thing. No other sites are offering the satellite speaker only. You may also contact JBL support regarding this if they can give you satellite speakers only.

Thank you for using Fixya!

How do the wires go into the back of the creature?


First go to this site and download and install this codec pack. Also, make sure you have your speakers set as you default sound device.


JBL Creature 2 are a computer speaker system designed and sold by JBL. The system is made up of two satellite speakers and an omni-directional subwoofer. The speaker system connects directly to a computer's available sound card output jack or a laptop's stereo output jack. Occasionally, problems can occur with the sound quality and connection with the speaker system. If there is no sound coming from the speakers, check the cable connections. Ensure the satellite speakers are firmly connected to the matching jacks on the back of the Creature's subwoofer. The connections are color coded and, in addition, each speaker connector is shaped differently to fit only into one jack. Ensure the output cable is firmly connected to the subwoofer audio in jack and the computer's audio-out jack. Ensure the power button on the back of the subwoofer is pushed inward. If everything is connected properly, the green lights on the underside of the satellite speakers will glow.If there is still no sound, tap the right-hand side audio-increase button on the right satellite speaker until sound is heard. Also ensure there is audio playing from the computer. Double check the lower right-hand side of the window's main screen and look for a speaker icon. If the icon has a red slash over it, click the icon and uncheck the "mute" option.


Hope this helps

The foam surround on my subs are cracked and torn. I need them repaired. Would it be more ideal to buy new subs or get these w7's repaired?


wow i won't throw them away or anything like that. You can always go down to your local JL Audio dealer to see how much to refoam the subs. Lot cheaper then buy new ones..... That's the way i would go.. Hope this was helpfull

The 6.5 foam ring


This is a very common problem and I don't know why companies still use foam.

The ring is called the "surround" and the problem is known as "surround rot".

There are 3 fixes.

Replace the entire driver. (most expensive)

Recone the driver (tear out the old cone + surround + spider and glue in a new one using the old basket).

Refoam the surround. (replace just the foam surround).

I know of one location in my hometown (Ottawa Ontario, that does re-foaming and people that do this are few and far between).

If you can find someone to refoam it go that route, failing that do a recone. A recone will last just as long as a new driver.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Diaphragm problem


Yes it can be replaced and your system will be as good as new afterwards.

To get an idea of the work involved: http://www.audiofriends.nl/pdf/refoaming.pdf

There are several companies selling these so called surrounds. There are foam and rubber surrounds. Stick to the same material as you may otherwise significantly alter your system's sound. Just google "speaker repair" or "speaker surrounds" and you will find several. You can ask them to repair your speakers (which may be fairly expensive) or you can order the surrounds and glue (you can not just use any glue) and do it yourself.

I have done such repairs a few times myself and it is absolutely not difficult.

Good luck.

The orange circle around the speaker seems to be dry rotted. But the speaker works fine,except on heavy bass tones. M40 speakers


If these are Cerwin Vega speakers or any other for that matter thay need to be refoamed. See a local speaker repair shop about refoaming. Dont use them till you get them refoamed. It is like the speakers suspension and stops the driver from going to far in its excursion.

THE WOOFER RATTLES REALLY BAD WHEN ANY MUSIC OR VOCAL IS RUN THROUGH IT, WE HAD THIS PROBLEM A FEW YEARS AGO AND REPLACED THE WOOFERS IN THE FRONT OF HOUSE MAIN PA SYSTEM, THE VOICE COIL WAS BAD.


you can have the woofer reconed, refoamed or replaced. if the voice coil is bad then you can only refoam or replace. if the problem is that the poly foam surround has dry rotted, then it can be refoamed or you can purchase a DIY refoam kit. there are also many replacement woofer options.
